All we do is run
away from the monsters
that point their guns
               they shoot.
               they miss.
then blow a kiss,
and walk away like
nothing
ever
happened

we are broken pieces of glass
scattered on the ground
no one picks us up
we don't make a sound

the world is turning
upside down,
with evil people wearing
broken crowns,

on this day our eyes
will meet,
watching everyone we know
turn to concrete.

this place we grew up in
is torn to shreds,
the world as we know it
will soon be dead.

if the sun sets today,
will i be able to see?
if my heart breaks tonight,
will i have time to grieve?
if i stop breathing tomorrow,
will i still feel the air?
if i die in a week,
will i even care?

now my heart is broken and
i cannot breathe, and the
sun has set and i cannot see, and
the air is cold and i'm numb
inside, and i'm crying out god
let me die.

but the broken and the loveless
and the blind all hear.
they take my shaking hands
and lead me from fear.

only the luckiest of lovers
survive,
with their painted lips
and golden eyes.

the rest of us will
fall apart,
with our hateful words
and broken hearts.
